African Tulips

Bangalore is full of African tulip trees and they are a very refreshing sight during Aug- Dec!  I started painting this from a photograph in Dec 2011, but could finish it only last week! Water colour on handmade paper 22X15 inch

The quality of the detail in your paintings is truly outstanding. The details do not detract but enhance!

Such unusual tulips! Wonderful. I love the colors you used and the feeling of various leaves around. Well done!
